Changing TMPDIR for restore?

I have tried changing the TMPDIR env variable for restore as I am
using a livecd to restore my server from a dump.  However, restore
doesn't seem to be recognizing the new tmp directory I created for it.
I did #set TMPDIR='/mnt/tmp'  and #echo $TMPDIR shows the correct
directory.  I am stuck, and not finding any hints on the net.

Any suggestions?
